Default settings in form field recognition

I am creating a fillable form in Acrobat X Pro. Is there a way to change default settings for form field recognition? For example, I would like all text boxes created using form field recognition to have a font size of 10 rather than Auto. I would also like all checkboxes to have a check mark rather than a square.


If this is not an option then I would at least like to be able to update all fields on a given form simultaneously rather than having to change the setting for each one individually. I have a 12 page form with roughly 80 text boxes and 100 check boxes and I want them all to have consistent formatting without having to change the settings for each field individually.
